Maj. Steven Gventer

Steven Gventer, a Clark High School scholar and athlete, graduated from Baylor University and was a high school teacher in north Texas until 1997, when patriotism motivated him to enlist in the U.S. Army Officer Candidate School. By 2004, he was a commander in Sadr City, Baghdad's most dangerous neighborhood. Seriously wounded twice, he was awarded two Purple Hearts and three Bronze Stars. Next, Maj. Gventer was asked to develop and lead the first U.S. Army Warrior Transition Company at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. His attention to the quality of care at Walter Reed and other military hospitals prompted his promotion to Executive Assistant in the Warrior Care and Transition Office of the U.S. Army Surgeon General. America's fighting men and women injured in the line of duty can trust in Maj. Steven Gventer to help them navigate the health care system and get back on their feet - often saving their lives.
